Being pulled over for a DUI can be frightening and overwhelming. People are usually shocked when they get pulled over, and therefore do not always respond in the most optimal way. It is best to be as prepared as possible for this kind of situation, as it can be disorienting in the moment. Understanding the DUI process ahead of time can help prevent you from making serious mistakes if you ever face this situation.
According to Florida law, a person can be convicted of driving under the influence if:
The state can prove the accused was driving while their faculties were impaired
The state can prove that the accused was operating a motor vehicle with a Blood or Breath Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher.
ONLY 10 DAYS TO CHALLENGE LICENSE SUSPENSION
After a person is arrested for DUI, he/she only has 10 days from the date of his/her arrest to request an Administrative Hearing with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV). Failure to schedule this hearing will result in automatic license suspension for either 6, 12, or 18 months, depending on the arrestee’s individual situation.
